Re: Just in case you never want to miss going to the Nationals

Calclub should buy this and offer transport, for profit, at all away races. :thumbup:

Re: Review of my best run on the practice course on 5-5-2018

Looks pretty good overall for someone new to autocross :thumbup: Could be closer to some of the cones and the steering inputs could be smoother. Biggest impression that I got from the video was your car looked pretty loose. A lot of counter steering in transitions.

Thanks George! :thumbup: Is a 25' roll enough to wrap around the entire MR2? I don't think so. If google is correct, 153″ L x 67″ W are the dimensions of your mr2 spyder. I got 440" which is about 37ft. so you should get 38-40ft for some slack if you want to do a giant single roll around the c...

WTB: Tire Blankets

Hi everyone, I was set on making a set of these and my understanding is that they are made from duct insulation? But when I sent to Lowe's and Home Depot, all I could find was foil insulation with messy fiberglass sandwiched in between instead of the bubble-wrap type material. Does anyone know where...

Re: Tire Mounting Place

So all the tire places I've used in central OC have gone by the wayside. Any recommendations for the HB/Newport/CM area? Seems most of the tire places change management as often as a runner changes socks. And it's never for the better. Rim & Tire Center in Garden Grove would do my rotations for...
